Remember Together Youth Festival

Remember Together 2019

This year, The Royal British Legion remembers the important relationship between Britain and its allies in securing victory in the Second World War. Together, the Commonwealth, the United States and the free armies of Europe won decisive victories in Normandy, Italy, and the Far East. In 2019 we will commemorate and remember their combined bravery and sacrifice with a range of events and activities, including our second Youth Festival for schools.


'Remember Together' Youth Festival

In partnership with The Royal British Legion, the Arboretum will be hosting its second Youth Festival from Monday 8 – Friday 12 July 2019. Booking is essential for this FREE to attend schools and academies event which provides KS3 & KS4 students with the opportunity to participate in a range of cross-curricular activities linked to the theme of World War II.
